Bangkok, Thailand (December 17, 2008)-Today, the Asianux Consortium, which was founded by Red Flag from China, HAANSOFT from Korea, MIRACLE Linux from Japan and VietSoftware from Vietnam, officially announced that WTEC of Thailand will join Asianux Consortium as the 5th members.


Following the Asianux big success in Mobile products in 2008, the Asianux Consortium keeps on expanding in Asia and welcomes their new member, WTEC of Thailand, at the end of the harvest year. WTEC Company Limited, founded in 2003, specializes in the field of System Integration and IT services, with over 400 customers in both the corporate and government sector. The company was rated by IDC as one of the fifteen most interesting companies in Thailand in 2007. As a member of the Open Source Software Network (OSSN) - an organization ran by the Ministry of Science of Thailand- WTEC have taken part in many initiatives that helped to push the open source awareness in Thailand. Owing to their contribution and effort, WTEC became the major commercial advocate of open source software and a leading open source house.

With WTEC joining them, Asianux solidifies even more their position on the Linux for Enterprise OS market in Asia and improve their contribution worldwide.

WTEC will release Asianux product nationwide; they will also develop Linux for Enterprise OS business through Asianux in addition to their own open source software business. WTEC already secured a variety of open source technologies and delivered many solutions based on open source software.

Thanks to the unique ‘4-CO’ business model of Asianux - co-development, co-brand, co-support and co-marketing the Asianux Consortium differentiates itself from other Linux vendors such as Red Hat and Novell. Asianux is contributing to establish an Asian standard Linux Platform in terms of combining Asia wisdom and taking advantages of integrated local resources. According to IDC, Asianux has developed into the 3rd largest Linux vendor in 2007. Since most Asian countries have strong intention to promote local software industry and OSS technology, Asianux business model gets applause from Asian countries. After the joining of WTEC, the Asianux Consortium expects more and more companies to join them in the near future.

Dong Jia, President of Red Flag Software states: “By the contribution of every member, Asianux achieved a great success in 2008. We are pleased welcome WTEC join Asianux Consortium at the end of this triumphant year. The Joining of WTEC expends our coverage in Asian to deliver more qualification products and service to customers. Welcome more and more Asian countries join Asianux to build and share our brilliant future”

Current Linux market share is approximately

8% in Thailand, however, the due to spread of official licenses I believe that the Linux market share would be increased, which contributes to the progress of Asianux. Japanese government supports and invites over 250 engineers through Computer Association of Thailand to give the training of software development. I strongly wish that Asianux works for the improvement of Open Source Software in Thailand by experience of MIRACLE LINUX. "

Sujin Kim President & CEO of HAANSOFT said that “It is remarkable for Asianux to take yet another step forward expanding new business opportunities by adding a 5th member, WTEC to the Asianux community.

This means a further expansion of Asianux in Asia, which has once again proved the significance of the 4-CO of the consortium. A greater membership of Asianux will lead to greater user confidence and larger market for the consortium.

Phiroon Phihakendr, Managing Director of WTEC said, “We are very honored to be the 5th member of the Asianux consortium as we will have a chance to take part in promoting our Asian flavor of Linux in a big and Asian way. As businesses get harder to be profitable especially with the economic downturn at the moment, a lot of companies will take a serious look at open source. I am confident that the market will be more receptive to Asianux’s way of selling than those of our counterparts’. Thank you for the big welcome from the members. We are looking forward to learning from the big boys.”
